Pegasus Palooza – At UCF during the first week back in the Fall semester to help greet the new coming students, UCF throws this week of events called Pegasus Palooza. Some of the events include concerts, parades, carnivals, and the Spirit Splash. On Campus there is a HUGE fountain that none is allowed to step foot in, but one time a year they allow anyone and everyone to run in it and party. It is a cherished UCF event.

UCF doesn't have a huge range of diverse students, but they definitely do have some diversity. UCF is the second largest school in the country, so they definitely have a diverse campus, but if you were to ask a class who was from Florida you would see about 75% put their hands up.

The Centers on UCF's Campus are amazing. For example the Gym on Campus is clean and Sanitary because they have wipes everywhere and the students actually use them to wipe down the equipment. Also the Student Union is always clean and has welcoming banners hanging telling students about what is happening on campus. The Student Union is the perfect place to grab lunch and hang out during your break.

Keep You on Your Toes! You have to always check and recheck to make sure everything is in line. It's really easy for things to fall out of wack with financial aid, so you have to be very efficient and tedious when it comes to money.

UCF varies dramatically with its school policies. Whenever a situation surfaces, the school makes an extreme change. However, there's never any moderation or maintenance of the change, making it difficult to follow at times.

Go Jocks! Sports is big at UCF. Everyone is pretty much a loyal knights fan and we always go cheer the team on no matter the sport. Football is overwhelming big among the students and the community. And whether we win or lose, it's all fun!

Its Fine Here – There aren't a ton of places nearby, but there are some good restaurants within a half hour of driving
Recent Alumnus 2011-09-07T14:04:32Z
Eh, Its Ok – There isn't much on campus here. The gym is really packed and the only sports team nearby is the Magic which isn't too bad. Traffic is really terrible and there is always a cop siren going off. The beach is a good drive away but its not unreasonable.

What You Don't Know, Won't Hurt You! Greek life is a secret society. What goes on in a Greek life is kept confidential. The Greek houses on campus are huge and sometime you don't know if a student is in a Sorority or Fraternity unless they let you know.

A Diverse World – This college is comprised of largely whites. With also a strong distribution of hispanics,blacks,asians and others. I personally feel welcomed by all ethic groups at UCF. UCF is a huge family that is willing to help you better yourself disregarding your ethnic/racial background.

Off-campus dining offer more choices and the cost is cheaper if not the same. The quality is sometime better. Off-campus dining provides a wide-variety of food.

School Shuttles – the school shuttle is the best option if you live near or on campus. if you drive to school, you can park in a garage and walk between classes or catch the shuttle to get to your next class.

Drinking is much of the popular scene especially tailgating at football games. If you're interested in other stuff, it depends on the type of people that you hang out with.

They have lots of Access for computers, MAC and PC and the wireless is very nice.

Health & Safety:
Pretty Safe – I have never really felt unsafe on campus, but I spend most of my time on campus during the day and avoid walking around at night time.

Parking Sucks, Use the Bus – Knights Circle buses are the best! I'm not very informed on any other transportation options offered by UCF.
Recent Alumnus 2011-09-06T19:55:19Z
Under 21 Sucks – Lots of 18 and up clubs around UCF but most things to do around here would be more fun if you were 21...or rich.

There are so many different backgrounds that are identified at UCF. There is a club for almost everybody there and I see many people from other countries flocking to the school. I do wish that caucasians were looked at more though...I LOVE diversity but half of the scholarships from UCF are for people with Latin, African American, or Asian backgrounds. I just believe we all deserve the same amount of recognition and opportunity.

Guys & Girls:
Social Life – Both girls and guys get along pretty well at UCF. Most events are for both genders and we jus all come at once and have fun. Sometimes the guys try to show off their moves, but guys will always b guys. Socially its great because its jus not hanging with one gender, but its mixed. Of course there are seperate guys and girls organizations, but for the most part it is diverse.

UCF's dinning hall are great to eat at. They have two located on campus: Market Place and Knightros. They are both delicious and have a variety of food to choose from. They serve break lunch and dinner Monday-Friday and brunch and dinner Saturday-Sunday. The menu changes everyday, so you never have to eat the same thing all the time. Also if you dont want to eat it they will allow you to take a plate to go. Both dinning hall are great and I am glad to have a meal plan because I will never go hungry.

The University of Central Florida always tries to keep its students entertained in a safe environment. The first week back UCF have a welcome full of free activiteies for the students to welcome them to the campus and its great. They have something for everyone. Also every month they have this event called Late Knights. It is a special event with a different theme each time giving fun, entertainment, food, prizes, and so much more for the students. Also as well they have other great events each month making sure that the students stay together. Its a way to meet new people and have fun. Its a safe environment as well so yiu dont have to go no where else outside the campus where danger follows.

I believe that UCF is a budding campus that allows for all sorts of innovative ideas.
College Junior 2011-09-06T15:36:55Z
Friendliness Is the Key – Knights are by far the FRIENDLIEST people you'll met. I remember walking through UF and FSU's campus with no one willing to help or wanting to start a conversation. While walking through UCF random people will start a conversation with you or if someone see's you look lost they are willing to help you find your way. UCF is the second biggest campus in the nation therefore a helping had is often needed. The campus is constantly creating events and games in order for students to interact with other students giving people a chance to make friends. Who wouldn't want to go to a college like that?
Sorry, there are no reviews.
